  • Toast bulgur in a large dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  • Add beef to pan and cook over medium heat, breaking up clumps with a fork, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel; add olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add the reserved vegetables and cook, stirring, until they start to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add flour and stir for 1 minute. Add broth, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce and the reserved beef and bulgur. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

  • To make crust & bake pie: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, celery seed and parsley in a mixing bowl.

  • Combine buttermilk and canola oil in a glass measuring cup. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and stir with a fork until just combined.

  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead gently 7 to 8 times. Roll into an 8-inch circle with a floured rolling pin. Flour a fluted pastry wheel or a knife and cut dough into 6 triangles.

  • Spoon the filling into an ungreased 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie pan. Arrange biscuits evenly over filling. Bake until bubbling, 20 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I have to say that I was disapointed in this dish. I rarely eat meat and I had a craving so I decided to make this. It is definitely not filling and the overwhelming flavor is the barbeque sauce. The bisquit is tough and the celery seed is too strong. There is very little texture and without some serious tweeking I doubt that I will ever make this again. Courtney Redwood City CA Read More
